A New Master Instructor in the Martial Arts
And a GREAT work out to you!
Listen, this is neat.
The Academy Awards are coming up,
next day or two
and people get these golden Oscars
for being great.
You know what could be better?
With that said,
To new Master instructor
Michael D. Jilcott!
Here’s his win!
Thank you for all you have put out. I have been in the martial arts for
over 30+ years. My first instructor (actually my second but I learned so
much more from him) started me on my “openness” for all forms of martial
arts. He taught Shudokan Karate, but brought in other instructors from
other styles (tae kwon do, other karate, aikido, kung fu).
There were things that I learned, or I should say, was exposed to, that I
would not learn for YEARS later. Some I re-discovered on my own, others
through the help of others, like yourself.
I really enjoyed reading the Master Instructor Course. I have gotten new
light on how to tell someone how to “ground” themselves, and a little more
I like your teaching theory [ ] I know that I need to work on this aspect. The other main thing that I need to work on is-not teaching too much at one time. With the kids, I don’t have this issue as bad. BUT with adults, I seem to have. I guess that I want them to know just as much as possible.
I am now on to the “How to Create Kenpo” series. I have recently been
given some kenpo videos. So when I saw that you have a series on Kenpo, of
course I had to get them.
What is your recommendation on the order to read your books on matrixing?
Thank you so much
Michael D Jilcott
Thank you, Michael.
And well done!
his point about teaching too much,
we want the student to understand,
and we explain.
But the best explanation is in the doing.
We aren’t bad for our efforts,
just over zealous.
It takes a LOT of discipline
to stop out mouth,
and keep those guys sweating.
But that is key
to teaching the real martial arts.
and I am glad Michael brought this up.
I have had a lot of people comment on this,
and it is a small point,
but it is a point that shows
how simple the Master Instructor Course is.
Not stupid simple,
but common sense,
slap your head simple.
The truth is always simple,
and that’s why it seems to get overlooked.
So thank you, Michael,
for bringing up this point.
the method for studying matrixing.
You can do the courses/books
as you wish,
according to your desire.
But if you wish to go through the whole thing
in logical step by step order,
Here’s the basic look at how you do it.
The first eight courses
on the Monster Martial Arts home page,
are the heart of matrixing.
They are the first ones I developed.
below those eight courses,
are special interest courses,
fields in which I began applying matrixing,
and so on.
The exact history of matrixing is presented in five books.
Four of these books
are included on video courses.
Pan Gai Noon, Kang Duk Won,
Kwon Bup, Outlaw Karate,
and Buddha Crane Karate,
they are the encyclopedia of Karate,
they show the research done
how I had to cover Karate
beginning to end,
to matrix it.
which, of course,
opened the door to the rest of the martial arts.
And it is important that you understand
that these five books are not matrixing.
They are matrix influenced,
it shows how I evolved
and came up with matrixing.
Which brings us to the latest books
i have come out with.
These are Matrixing applied to specific arts.
we have the Creating Kenpo series.
I take Kenpo apart,
let you see how I actually analyze techniques,
and show you how to make everything smoother,
and how to put everything together
in a new format.
The creating kenpo series
will REALLY make you think,
and other martial arts.
I take a look at the Marine Corps Martial Arts.
This is fascinating
because this art is meant for serious people,
yet there are some massive mistakes in it.
Of extra interest
is the way I combine hands and weapons,
and especially the belt by belt format
on developing kicking.
Tong Bei is an internal Gung Fu
with massive potential.
It is different,
and yet VERY combat oriented.
Will there be more?
I’ve already stated my intent
in areas such as the samurai sword,
and Wing chun.
And there are lots of arts out there,
that are begging for a little order,
and faster ways of learning them.
thanks to Michael for bringing this up,
